We are recruiting for new Board Members at CRNS

We are currently recruiting for 2-3 new members of the CRNS board.  Perhaps this is something you could consider?  If so we would really like to hear from you.

What are we looking for?

We are looking for board members who can represent the CRNS membership as a whole.  This means that you either work for one of our members or alternatively you may be on the board of one of our members.  It also means that you are able to consider the needs of the wider sector too.

It is important that you are wanting to be involved in this exciting leadership position within the community resources sector.  At CRNS we seek to support and represent the sector and our Board are central to that.  Practically, this means you are willing to put the time in to serve on our Board.  We normally meet once every two months for a board meeting in the central belt of Scotland (although we do have an option to dial-in).  We also have various board papers and reports which need to be engaged with before and between meetings.

We are fully committed to diversity at CRNS, since we know this enriches our discussions and the organisation as a whole.  With this in mind we would welcome applications from an unrepresented minority or a younger person as we wish to reflect the society we live in and the community that we serve.

Why you should consider this?

You would be joining a strong and effective board.  Our current directors are a great team and our board meetings are well run and good fun!

As well as serving CRNS, you would also gain valuable experience of the wider community resources sector and add new skills to use in other parts of your career.

As is normal for charities in Scotland this is a voluntary (i.e. unpaid) position but we are able to reimburse reasonable expenses.
